Hiroshima, Mon Amour


Location la: Redstone Theater

Introduced by Annette Insdorf, author of Cinematic Overtures: How to Read Opening Scenes

Dir. Alain Resnais. 1959, 90 mins. DCP. With Emmanuelle Riva, Eiji Okada. A new restoration of one of the classics of cinema, Hiroshima Mon Amour depicts a brief affair between a French actress (Emmanuelle Riva) and a Japanese architect (Eiji Okada) in the rebuilt and thriving Hiroshima of 1959. The couple’s bliss is slowly eroded by the unavoidable memories of the war and atomic mass destruction. Columbia University Professor Annette Insdorf will introduce the screening, which will be followed by a book signing.
